Any sugar-free recipes?


Get real - like premium ice creams, it's "screw the diabetics" in the world of egg nog.
Fat free, flavored, everything else available but of course, no sugar free.

This is a recipe that I created based on reading countless recipes online.  I made this a few weeks ago for our secret santa night.  It definately has a STRONG rum flavor, which I didn't mind.  But I might cut the amount of rum down next time.

I also made three kinds of liqueur flavored whipped cream for topping.  1/4 C Heavy cream, 2 T sugar, and 2 T of liqueur.  I made Chambord, Kahlua, and Amaretto.  The Chambord was by far the best.

Ingredients:

  • 6 large eggs, plus 2 yolks
  • 1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup dark rum
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
  • Additional grated nutmeg for garnish

Preparation:

Combine eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and salt in a heavy 3- or 4-quart pan, whisking until well-combined. Continue whisking while pouring milk in a slow, steady stream until completely incorporated. Turn on burner to lowest possible heat setting. Place pan on burner and stir mixture continuously until an instant read thermometer reaches 160 degrees F. and the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Be patient. This should take about 25 to 30 minutes.

Strain mixture through a fine sieve into a large bowl to remove any accidental small cooked bits of egg. Add rum, plus vanilla extract and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Pour into a glass pitcher, decanter, or container and cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate this egg custard mixture to chill at least 4 hours or up to 3 days before finishing.

When ready to serve, pour heavy cream into a bowl and whip until it forms soft peaks. Fold whipped cream into cold custard mixture until combined.

Serve in chilled cups or glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Yield: 12 to 16 eggnog servings

I love eggnog! I just saw some at the store but it was ridiculously expensive. Something like $2.5 a pint...plus when you look at the nutitional facts and realize that drinking the whole pint (not hard to do) will set you back about 650 calories " /> ....might as well just buy the quart for $1.00 more and call it a day

The "Southern Comfort" Vanilla Egg Nog is just about the best thing in commercially made "nogs" to me. A local company (northwest Arkansas) starting putting nog on the shelves a couple of weeks ago in a Halloween themed carton and calling it "Halloween Nog!" I'm for that. I wish we had nog all year long!

Eggnog was always a Christmas tradition at my grandparents.  They had a dairy farm(Jersey cows, the highest fat content milk) & my grandmother rasied her own chickens.  I don't have my grandmother's recipe,but I know she made a rich custard with whole milk & eggs, folded in whipped cream & then a genous glug of bourbon.  She made the eggnog a few days before Christmas day & kept it in the refergerator in an stoneware pitcher.  Every day my grandfather would add just a little more bourbon.  By the time Christmas day came, the eggnog was more of a bourbon tan color rather than a creamy custard color.  Then my grandfather, uncle & dad would add bourbon to their cups before adding the eggnog.  Christmas was a very merry day at my grandparents.

I buy a local milk company brand, Brown's Velvet.  I enjoy it with some bourbon and whole grated nutmeg.  I saw it before Halloween, and thought it was a little early, also saw fresh cranberries, which I always assoicate with Thanksgiving.

I would like an occasional glass of eggnog, but am diabetic, and don't love it enough to make it myself.

Really annoying to see all the eggnog, lite eggnog, lactose free eggnog, and probably gluten free eggnog in the diary case, but not one sugar free eggnog.

Egg Nog makes a great Pancake. Substitute it for the milk and add cinnamon. Because of the high sugar content you have to watch the cooking time but they look and taste great. Get the stuff in the glass bottle that is as thick as oil...Russ 
 
 
I bet French Toast would be amazing.

I love eggnog. The store brand is good enough for me, I'm not picky.

I drink it.
I put it in coffee.
I make a seasonal rice pudding with it, subbing eggnog for the usual evap milk.
I make waffles with it.

I love the stuff.

That sounds great. Do you ever have a problem with the eggs cooking or curdling  in any of your concoctions? I know at Starbucks ('least they tell me) they can't make the egg nog lattes extra hot because it "scrambles the egg"....delicious!

No problemo with any curdling. The rice pudding is a no-bake method I came up with a few years ago, so there's certainly no heat involved there.

Be careful what you wish for when it comes to egg nog. A friend of mine promised to bring the best egg nog ever to Thanksgiving dinner - which he did. It was made with Hagen Daz vanilla ice cream and it was unreal.
 
And then I ended up with 10 lbs of turkey leftovers because everyone had filled up on the egg nog and couldn't eat the main course! Even my cats got tired of turkey and wouldn't eat it after the third day.

Back in '08 Faboyster gave us a recipe for coquito - a Puerto Rican eggnog. Sadly, I never got around to making it, but today's NYTimes has an article on a recent contest for the best coquito in NY which reminds me that it is time to try out our fellow roadfooder's recipe. 

The contest was won by a woman from Tobyhanna , PA., a tiny place in the Pconos. Apparently her recipe is a secret. 

Cheers, John

dberryann, do you put whiskey in the eggnog before you freeze it? The idea sounds really good.

I like Pearsons from my home town , Millbury, Mass. It is made and sold right on the small farm. It can also be found at the local hardware store.

Most commercial eggnog now contains HFCS, and I have  read  that people avoid it for that reason. In my own opinion, if you are going to drink just a few 4 oz glasses a year, what is a little HFCS, when you consider all the other bad for you stuff in it?

I saw 1/2 gal bottles of Turkey Hill eggnog in the store. I wonder if they just let the ice cream melt and then bottle it?     :)                re
